Trader Vic's is one of those establishments that has been around for donkeys years, relying heavily on trade from the London Hilton Hotel in which it is located, I severely doubt it would remain open if it wasnt so popular with hotel guests. It is also pretty well known for ‘ladies of the night’ (to be polite) touting their wares to businessmen and the like.
The drinks are superb, despite being mostly rum based and INCREDIBLY alcoholic! The Tiki Puka Puka is one of my all time favourites and comes adorned with a beautiful orchid flower. The bar food is actually way better than the restaurant to be honest… I always go with friends and we order lots of different bar snacks including fantastic spare ribs, crab rangoon, perfect calamari and lots of other delicious treats.
I would say Mahiki ripped this concept off completely and ruined it with their chavvy overpriced version of a Tiki bar-cum-club. Ditch Mahiki and go to Trader Vics… These bars were the epitome of chic in the 70's and 80's!
